  • This core indicator evaluates the status of the marine environment based on the presence of hazardous substances in the bottom sediments. The rate of embryo malformations indicates reproductive toxicity due to the presence of hazardous substances in the bottom sediments. The threshold value has not been achieved on all stations within each basin indicating that toxic effects of contaminants may be present. The variability of the malformation rate is much greater within a basin than between the Bothnian Sea and the Baltic proper. This dataset displays the result of the indicator in HELCOM Assessment Scale 2 (Division of the Baltic Sea into 17 sub-basins). Attribute information: “SB_Code” = Code of the Helcom subbasin "Name" = Name of the Helcom scale 2 assessment unit "AREAKM2" = Area of the Helcom scale 2 assessment unit HELCOM_ID = Helcom id of the Helcom scale 2 assessment unit Status = Status of the indicator (“Good”, “Not good” or “Not assessed”)

  • Observations of Scyliorhinus canicula were collected from the Baltic Sea area for HELCOM Red List species list. The HELCOM Red List of Baltic Sea species in danger of becoming extinct (2013) is the first threat assessment for Baltic Sea species that covers all marine mammals, fish, birds, macrophytes (aquatic plants), and benthic invertebrates, and follows the Red List criteria of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Almost 2800 species were considered in the Red List assessment and about 1750 were evaluated according to the IUCN Red List criteria. Scyliorhinus canicula has been placed to the Red List category of Least Concern (LC) species. The map shows the sub-basins in the HELCOM area where the species is known to occur regularly and to reproduce (HELCOM 2012).

  • The indicator evaluates the status of the soft-bottom macrofauna community above the permanent halocline in the open sea areas of the Baltic Sea. Quantitative thresholds are used to evaluate if core indicators status is Good, Not good or Not assessed. The current assessment result shows good status in most of the evaluated assessment units. The indicator is not used in coastal areas which are assessed by national methods or in areas below the halocline which are assessed using the Oxygen debt indicator. The indicator takes into account the relative proportion of sensitive and tolerant species, as well as species richness and abundance. This dataset displays the result of the indicator in HELCOM Assessment Scale 4 (Division of the Baltic Sea into 17 sub-basins and further division into coastal and off-shore areas and division of the coastal areas by WFD water types or water bodies), so that the indicator is only applicable in the open sea assessment units. Attribute information: HELCOM_ID = Helcmon assessment unit scale 4 ID threshold = Indicator threshold value Indicator = Value of the indicator Status = Status of the indicator (“Good”, “Not good” or “Not assessed”) ConfA = confidence of classification ConfT = Temporal confidence of classification ConfS = Spatial confidence of classification ConfM = Methodological confidence of classification A_unit = Name of scale 4 Helcom assessment unit

  • This dataset represents the underlying data on core indicator Zooplankton mean size and total stock (MSTS). The core indicator evaluates zooplankton community structure to determine whether it reflects good environmental status. Quantitative thresholds are used to evaluate core indicators status in Achieve, Fail or Not assessed. As a rule, achieve status occur when large sized zooplankters occur abundantly in the plankton community. Due to strong environmental gradients, size distribution and total stock of the zooplankton corresponding to achieve status vary between the Baltic Sea sub-basins. This dataset displays the result of the indicator in HELCOM Assessment Scale 2 (Division of the Baltic Sea into 17 sub-basins). The dataset contains following attributes: "HELCOM_ID" = ID of the HELCOM scale 2 assessment unit "SB_Code" = Code of the HELCOM subbasin "Name" = Name of the HELCOM scale 2 assessment unit "Threshold value" = Threshold value for this indicator "Indicator value" = Value for the indicator in HELCOM scale 2 assessment unit "Status" = Status of the indicator (“Good”, “Not good” or “Not assessed”) "Info" = additional information "AULEVEL" = Assessment unit level used for the indicator "ConfA" = confidence of classification "ConfT" = Temporal confidence of classification "ConfS" = Spatial confidence of classification "ConfM" = Methodological confidence of classification

  • The indicator evaluates the status of the soft-bottom macrofauna community above the permanent halocline in the open sea areas of the Baltic Sea. Quantitative thresholds are used to classify the core indicators status in Achieve, Fail or Not assessed. The current assessment result shows good status in most of the evaluated assessment units. The indicator is not used in coastal areas which are assessed by national methods or in areas below the halocline which are assessed using the Oxygen debt indicator. The indicator takes into account the relative proportion of sensitive and tolerant species, as well as species richness and abundance. This dataset displays the result of the indicator in HELCOM Assessment Scale 3 (Division of the Baltic Sea into 17 sub-basins and further division into coastal and off-shore areas), so that the indicator is only applicable in the open sea assessment units. "HELCOM_ID" = HELCOM assessment unit scale 3 ID "country" = Country "level_2" = Name of scale 2 HELCOM assessment unit "level_3" = Name of scale 3 HELCOM assessment unit "area_km2" = "Area (km2)" = Area of HELCOM assessment unit "coastal" = Code of scale 3 HELCOM assessment unit "open_sea" = Name of the open sea area "AULEVEL" = Assessment unit level used for the indicator "Threshold value" = Indicator threshold value "Indicator value" = Value of the indicator "Status" = Status of the indicator (“Achieve”, “Fail” or “Not assessed”) "ConfA" = confidence of classification "ConfT" = Temporal confidence of classification "ConfS" = Spatial confidence of classification "ConfM" = Methodological confidence of classification

  • This dataset describes fishing intensity for OT DMF mobile bottom contacting gear in 2012 based on VMS/Log book data processed by ICES Working Group on Spatial Fisheries Data (WGSFD). ICES secretariat collected during 2017 relevant VMS and logbook data for 2009-2016 to produce, as a technical service to HELCOM, updated spatial data layers on fishing intensity/pressure. Improved data quality control checks were implemented. Submitted data across the HELCOM area have improved in quality compared to previous data 2009-2013 published in 2015. Standardized methods were used to produce the requested data layers. The code used to create the data products is available here: https://github.com/ices-eg/wg_WGSFD For further technical information on the advice request, see http://www.ices.dk/sites/pub/Publication%20Reports/Advice/2017/Special_requests/helcom.2017.18.pdf HELCOM secretariat did the following processing to the shapefile provided by ICES: - Conversion to ETRS89LAEA coordinate system - Added feature and attribute "Reported" to display unreported areas.
